Mr SUKKAR (Deakin) (13:49): I rise today to pay tribute to the hard-working parents, friends and parishioners of the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Primary School and Parish in Ringwood, who last weekend held their annual school fete, where over $47,000 was raised. Our Lady's is a vibrant community, with over 300 primary school students from across the Deakin electorate. I was pleased to be able to join with the school community for part of the day at the 'Chip Stall', where I assisted with preparing and serving hot chips throughout the afternoon.

I would like to take this opportunity to place on record my thanks to the principal, Angela Lacey, for her tireless work and dedication to the Our Lady school community as well as the parish council and all the members of the fete's organisational committee for making this annual event such a success again this year. In particular, I want to acknowledge Nicole Lewino, Melanie Rowe, Rachel Livingstone, Midge Phillips, Rowena Broderick, Marnie Reichert, Hamish Reid, Pascale and Karine Lebon, Bob Laidlaw and Cathy Forbes, who helped make the day such a success. I know from experience that much work goes into organising events of this nature and on behalf of the Deakin electorate more broadly I wish to congratulate all of them once again for their efforts and everything that they do to make their school, parish and broader community a better place.
